It has been one of our biggest honors to be asked to headline this show in honor of one of our greatest friends and music lover's!
Live, Laugh, Love ...that was Jodie’s motto. On March 26, 2013 we lost one of the brightest lights on this planet. Jodie loved the life she lived and lived the life she loved. She never met a stranger. Her smile lit up a room.
The following was written by Doug Gray of the Marshall Tucker Band and read at Jodie’s funeral. “Today the wind will continue to blow on by us as it always will. Jodie would grab the wind, the hearts and the spirit of everyone she met and always say “Let’s keep moving on!”. Where you are today, that smile will still be on your face because you are seeing your friends and embracing their love, because they miss you as much as we do and will until you have everyone together again”.
Jodie was an ambassador of music ... old and new. Join us for an evening of live music, food, cash bar, silent auction and memories shared of Jodie McNeil Gooch.
A few of the auction items include a first edition signed copy of Gregg Allman's new book "My Cross to Bear" with certificate of authenticity; a Trey Anastasio (Phish) autographed guitar with COA; a pendant in sterling silver with Gregg's (gold tone) and Devon's (silver colored) concert-played strings; a rare 2 disc CD of Duane Allman's last show (Pittsburgh, October 1971); a rare CD from May 4, 1969 at Central City Park in Macon featuring the entire band; and an excellent quality 8x10 autographed print of ABB, signed by Gregg, Dickey, Warren and Jaimoe. This is only a partial listing.
The evening begins at 7:00 p.m with our MC for the event, Rusty Edwards. Following Rusty will be the Joe Pitts Band, Sammy and the Slamrz and Davin McCoy closing the evening. All musicians will be invited onstage at the close of the show for a jam session to honor Jodie.
All proceeds to benefit the Allman Brothers Big House Museum.
